After you have completed the installation of SQL Server 2000 on your database server, it is time to think about connecting the clients. Clients, which are typically front-end applications, require their own set of software that enables them to connect to and use an instance of Microsoft SQL Server on the network.

This chapter focuses on the installation and configuration of the SQL Server client software components, including those that facilitate communications between the client computers and the server. It provides a basic understanding of the architecture that supports this communication, and then it delves into the information that you will need to get your clients connected.
